What Is Hydronic Heating?
Hydronic heaters use water in radiators to heat your home. The water is heated to a set temperature in a centrally located boiler that is usually run on gas. The hot water is pumped through pipes to panel radiators that are located in various places in the house. Each radiator heats the room evenly so that the whole house is comfortably warm.
Hydronic heating is one of the most energy efficient forms of heating. It is also considered good for the environment. The water used by the system is constantly recycled and is a highly efficient carrier of heat. Standard gas heating costs around 35 per cent more and the comparison with electricity is even better, with energy usage about 70 per cent less.
The long and profoundly cold winters in North America and Europe are the real test of hydronic heating, which is very popular there.
